                                 SECRET GARDEN by Aftelier Perfume
                                              The Key to the Scent of Life


   I open the gate to the summer season with a fragrance that was inspired by a novel set in the early twentieth century.

   It is a story about hope, courage and healing and in order to get these promises one must be brave and open the gate with the key.

  The key to life.

  Every time I read the book and watch the adapted television versions, I imagine how it must feel to finally see the garden transform into a lush, breathing and color place full of hope, courage and healing.

  Of course, this is a fictional story but you can always breath the essences of those amazing scents flowing through the air all day and night if you are Mandy Aftel who creates these aspiring scents in her boutique.

  I had this journey when I came across a beautiful spring and summer fragrance by Aftelier Perfumes.

  SECRET GARDEN, the fragrance is inspired by the book, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

  As I opened my sample of SECRET GARDEN Eau de Parfum Spray, I began to realize what it felt like to open up a whole new world of adventure captured by the lavish living organisms that keep us coming back for more adventure.

  I entered the SECRET GARDEN Eau de Parfum and I was welcomed by the cluster of roses, the sweetness of the nectar succumbed by the honey bees and the richness of raspberries that leaves the dark red stain on the lips.

  Suddenly I felt like the girl in the book, I was awaken and alive and the spellbinding scent of jasmine sambac swept me off my feet like the cascading birds in the garden as they landed on the posts of the garden gate.

  SECRET GARDEN by Aftelier Perfumes allows you to enter the garden as a child and after you experience the aroma, you leave as an adult with an understanding that anything is possible if you believe.

  SECRET GARDEN Eau de Parfum is the key to a grand future.

  INGREDIENTS: Top Notes: Bergamot, Bois de Rose, Geraniol, Blood Orange

                         Middle Notes: Jasmine Sambac, Raspberry (compound isolate), Turkish Rose, Blue Lotus

Niche Fragrances
                                                                       BAY RUM
                                  The scents for men at TAYLOR of Old Bond Street

   I trust a company who has been in business since its establishment in 1854. I trust a company that is family owned and operated and I trust a company that continues to provide high quality service and products that has expanded into the US customers and abroad.



  The company I am referring to is TAYLOR OF OLD BOND STREET headquartered in London, England.


  I was highly impressed when I went on their website. Each products is thoroughly explained and they actually offer a real catalogue, not a catalogue online. This is such a rarity nowadays when the internet is now used for such a luxury.


 I was equally impressed with how swiftly I got the catalog mailed to me. When I opened the delicate white envelope, out falls a beautiful black glossy, I mean really glossy book. I know they said a catalogue but to me, this is a book because they produced such an eloquently written catalogue and created with such time and pride, that I had to find something I wanted to purchase as a gift. In fact, there were several products I wanted to purchase for myself.


My speciality is fragrance but not limited to this category (more about this in another article).
I fell in love with two fragrances that consist of bay rum.


This is really great because I expected to find one fragrance for men with bay rum but to have discovered another one...is the icing on the cake.


TAYLOR OF OLD BOND STREET is such a sophisticated enterprise because the packaging is just as refine as the products itself. Sleek, dark, polished...sultry. These were my first impressions and now to think of the man that would appreciate such a gift from TAYLOR OF OLD BOND STREET. Well, I will leave that up to you to decide but I can suggest two fragrances that should be on anyone's gift giving list for Father's Day or anytime of the year.


First what is exactly bay rum? According to the American Heritage Dictionary it is "an aromatic liquid originally prepared by distilling the leaves of the bay rum tree in a rum and water."
  Bay rum originates from the West Indies and it is described as a woody, sweet and spicy scent with an island flavor.

  TAYLOR OF OLD BOND STREET offers two bay rum fragrances for men and they are Taylor of Old Bond Street Bay Rum and Mr. Sydney.


 Taylor of Old Bond Street Bay Rum is a fragrance that can be used as an aftershave or cologne. It is composed of real bay leaves that has the exotic scent of the Caribbean.


 Mr. Sydney comes in an array of fragrance notes and oils that provides a fougere (fern-like) fragrance. It has a woody scent surrounded by a sample lavender floral note and a spike of lemon oil plus other earthy notes such as patchouli, vertivert, bergamot, elemi oil,tea tree, basil, jasmin, ylang ylang, clove and of course, bay oil.

 It not only can be used as a cologne but can be combined with an astringent, too!

The Bay Rum comes in 150ml (small) and 250ml(large) sizes and Mr. Sydney comes in 250ml size only.

 NATURAL PERFUME

              ATLANTIC, the scent by Strange Invisible Perfumes
                                            BAY RUM, the scent loved by men

  Happy Father's Day 2012, the decision on what to buy your father, grandfather, husband, brother, uncle or friend. Will it be a tie again this year, or a fishing pole, or maybe a glove for grilling?

  Those are all wonderful gifts, but the gift of scent will never go out of style. When it comes to giving a gift for Father's Day, I like to give a classic. A gift that can be used all year long, not just for one day.

  This year my gift purchase will be a fragrance that men simply love. A strong but sweet and regal scent that provides a far-away horizon while sitting in the backyard reading a book.

  The scent of Bay Rum is a classic fragrance that originates from the West Indies and became a useful scent by starting as an aftershave cologne for me years ago. Thus, the popularity of the scent became a household name and now it can be found in many fragrances for men.

  This review is not just about any Bay Rum scent, I prefer the niche and natural fragrances, so I will go talk about ATLANTIC, an eau de parfum by Strange Invisible Perfumes (Venice, CA).

Alexandra Balahoutis
  Strange Invisible Perfumes is a perfumery created by perfumer and owner, Alexandra Balahoutis, a young woman who dedicates her vast and wonderful compositions using only real botanical essences.

  According to "SIPERFUMES"( Strange Invisible Perfumes), ATLANTIC is composed for the "well-traveled gentlemen". This makes a lot of sense, due to the fact that Bay Rum is a Caribbean fragrance and certainly a well-traveled gentlemen would have visited the Caribbean on several occasions.

 I love the smoky down-to-earth scent that endures the most intense weather encountered by a world traveller that provides a cooling sensation that provides 'peace of mind'.

It is the ultimate fragrance that is created with only the finest ingredients such as Amber, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Jamaican Bay Rum and English Peppermint.

Purchase: ATLANTIC Eau de Parfum  1.7fl oz $135.00 US      www.siperfumes.com

                   Eau de Parfum Sample  1/2 ml  $4.00 US

NEW FRAGRANCE LAUNCH

                                               ORCHID SEDUCTION
                     What Marilyn Miglin means to me


   I am very fortunate to have been raised in a metropolitan city full of interesting people and pretty objects. Years ago, I met a tremendous lady named Marilyn Miglin who was hosting a mentoring project.

  I learned some very valuable lessons from this very fortunate experience but what I really got out of the experience was how much I admired Marilyn Miglin. 

 Mrs. Miglin hosted a reception for the launch of this mentoring project and while seating at the table with some of Chicago's most powerful women, A soft but determined voice was felt in my right ear and the voice said, "It is your destiny". I turned around and there was Mrs. Miglin holding in her hand a sample of her perfume named, DESTINY.

 It was from that very day that I wanted to focus the rest of my life in perfumery regardless to the course work I focused on in college.

This is my first feature on the house of Marilyn Miglin. This house of creation, skincare, cosmetics, fragrance and spa is located on the prestigious Oak Street in Chicago. Whenever I walk on Oak Street and see the house of Marilyn Miglin, it is a reminder to me that with determination anything is possible.

Over the years, I have watched Marilyn Miglin either via HSN or in some of Chicago's most prestigious magazines covering the house of Marilyn Miglin empire grow and grow with each passing year.

Last week, I happen to watch the HSN and there I saw was Marilyn Miglin launching yet another divine LIMITED EDITION fragrance.

I immediately turned up the volume to learn more. The name of the new fragrance is ORCHID SEDUCTION.

I learned that ORCHID SEDUCTION is an Eau de Parfum that is made with so many flowers and oils that it is too many to mention on the box that the bottle comes in.

The essence of ORCHID SEDUCTION to me is to explore the beauty within a woman who is sexy, intelligent, brilliant with everlasting appeal.

It features some of the most expensive fragrance notes...

 Top Notes: citrus blend of Bergamot, Lemon Italian, Mandarin Spanish

 Heart Notes: Iris, Lily of the Valley, Jasmin, Turkish Rose Oil

 Base Notes: Amber

  Marilyn Miglin will always be known to me as one of the most sophisticated women I have ever known in the beauty business who truly puts her wonderful heart in the products she creates but more importantly into the people she encounters.

 I do what I do in this huge industry of perfumery
to be a tiny but intricate part of the world that Mrs. Miglin encounters on a daily basis.

 I'm sure Mrs. Miglin doesn't remember me when we first met but I am and will also be inspired by her true dedication to the 'Art of Perfumery' as a designer who is well educated with a passion that is endless.

So, if this is any indication of what ORCHID SEDUCTION truly is, then it is the scent for you. It is not just a scent for the summer. It is scent for all seasons because to be like Marilyn Miglin you have to always be prepared for endless possibilities.


Purchase ORCHID SEDUCTION 1.7 fl oz/50 ml at HSN for $28.50 US Item# 191-698. www.hsn.com


To purchase other fragrances by Marilyn Miglin go to www.marilynmiglin.com

                                                     ILLUMINUM PERFUME
                    Launches at Henri Bendel with the DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE

   Well not really. The truth of the matter is, ILLUMINUM PERFUME will be launched at the Henri Bendel New York on Tuesday, June 12, 2012. However, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge will not be there. Well sort of. The truth of the matter is, you can take pictures with the Duchess of Cambridge but she will be available only in a wax figure.

     Madam Tussauds, the world famous gallery of wax figures from kings and queens, presidents and first ladies and now the Duchess of Cambridge.

    Madam Tussauds's wax figure of Kate Middleton will be at the launch of ILLUMINUM  PERFUME because on the day of the Royal Wedding over a year ago, Kate Middleton  it is reported that Kate Middleton wore WHITE GARDENIA PETALS created by owner and perfumer, Michael Boadi of ILLUMINUM PERFUME.

Michael Boadi
   Mr. Boadi received wave reviews and as soon as  reports from several media outlets stated that the Duchess of Cambridge wore White Gardenia Petals perfume on her wedding day, this magnificent scent of white flowers sold out immediately.

   So, this is an event you do not want to miss! You get a glimpse at royalty with a fragrance that is fit for a heir and you get to take a photo with the Duchess of Cambridge (in a wax figure)... only in New York.

  The launch will be from 4pm-8pm at 712 5th Avenue  New York, New York.

   WHITE GARDENIA PETALS is loaded with the scent of white flowers cascading in a warm breeze. It is raptured in memories of beauty and luxury that wraps itself in a bouquet of an ocean oasis.

  Heart Notes: Jasmine, Muguet and White Gardenia
   Base Notes: Amber Wood

                              DIAMOND JUBILEE BOUQUET
                                                      by:Grossmith

  Grossmith continues to amaze me with their elegant and superior approach to perfumery. I am not surprised that they created a fragrance for the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

   You must understand that Grossmith is lengendary for hosting and creating scents for royalty.

   DIAMOND JUBILEE BOUQUET, according to Grossmith is 'The Royal Fragrance'. It is a LIMITED EDITION fragrance that is created with the finest notes that a Queen would admire.

   It has a creamy floral scent embedded with citrus notes that meets the standards of a high quality perfume.

   Grossmith only composed 500 bottles of DIAMOND JUBILEE BOUQUET but each of those bottles are beautiful and crystal clear glass with the fragrance shining through each bottle. It is topped with a distinctive gold or silver cap that comes in a 50 ML Eau de Parfum formula. 

  DIAMOND JUBILEE BOUQUET can  be purchased at the Grossmith Perfumery and Fortnum and Mason  because it is celebrating the DIAMOND JUBILEE that takes place only in London.

  This heavenly scent also contains Lily of the Valley, ncarcissus, rose, iris, jasmine, violet, carnation, vetiver, tonka bean, hawthorn, amber and musk.

  What I find even more beautiful with DIAMOND JUBILEE BOUQUET is that every bottle purchase, Grossmith perfumery will make a donation to The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.

     Mr. Guy Robert, world renowned perfumer and legend passed away on Monday, May 28, 2012.
He was one of the greatest perfumers of the twentieth century. His perfume creations were adorned world wide and he left a legacy that is truly hard to beat.

  Each fragrance that Mr. Robert composed spoke to each of us in a unique way and I can remember my reaction to each of those fragrances when I sniffed them for the first time, magical...breathtaking...divine.

  I will miss the artist we know as Guy Robert. He quietly performed his best works and he watched the world clamour for more. Well, we have to say good-bye. He is leaving us way too soon but we all owe Mr. Guy a huge Thank You for believing in us.

About Me

My photo

My passion for writing started as a child. Later, my passion for perfumery started as an older child. Now as an adult I write about both. As Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Fragrance Belles-Lettres Magazine I have the best of both worlds.

Writing and fragrances which gives me a beautiful writing combinations!

 Shortly, I will be introduces my first published book as an author.
